Candy Goes Here!

Happy Tuesday!
Today I made some treat boxes for my pretend grandchildren, my little next-door neighbor's.  I used the box from my Cricut Wedding Cartridge.  I know that sounds funny, but it has a kind of gothic look and when you make it with black paper, it works out quite well, so here they are:


This one is for Megan.


This one is for Jack (he kinda looks like Linus)



This one is for Brian, he is in Middle school now so I stamped a cool image on his with silver ink.
Here they all are together.
I like the way they turned out.  I attached a tag on each one and tied them closed with twine.  Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!  Hugs!

Hi, Chriss back again!  I received a message from one of my faithful followers after I had posted this blog asking me if I would show a side view of my candy box (if you did these in pastel colors with gauzy ribbon they would look great for wedding favors) so here is the side view.
And here it is opened up for candy.
Thanks for your question, I am always here to help!
